Well over a 1000 now, Rich is battling away to keep up with the orders.

Ron Duxbury reminiscing as much about the possibility of winning the raffle as well as 1990!

Please don't underestimate the part you folks play as a sales force! Any sharing with friends and family pushes the raffle right out into the wider town. There's an absolutely brilliant message for Russ and all Barrow fans from Kenny Gordon that we will be sharing at 12. Ryan's also got Chilts and Doc already on the website

Lovely stuff from Kenny Gordon, with a message for Russ and us all

Up to 1500, can we get 2000 before the teams walk out?

We have reached 3000 today. Is there any limit to what Barrow fans can do?

Now’s the time for us lot to really share the trusts messages on Facebook and Twitter; I know personally that a lot of people I know have started getting involved when they see the prize is up above a thousand quid

Russ has taken that much time selling to Bobby Moore that we have a late kick off on Radio Cumbria! Draw should be at 4. Have a listen here!

Take part here. We are over 3800

It has been great listening, not only to the game but the build-up which was very good. Nice to hear the late David Lamb (old-school BBC) setting the scene and the half-hour programme about the club and its history was excellent.

Great work with the tickets. Could it be another record?

Congratulations Nick, what a prize pot.

Unbelievable what has been achieved, especially over the last few months.
We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

Next Saturday would have been the fa Cup final maybe the draw could be based around memories good or bad of games in the FA Cup

Ian, do you have any idea what has been raised over the £65k now, just a guess?

Hiya Neil, I’ve no idea mate as I’m not involved with the raffle (wish we were.....we’d be building all sorts 😁) this fantastic initiative is all down to those clever lads at the Trust.
No doubt someone will be along to answer your question.

Hello folks,

Over 82k gross altogether

Remembering there is some overlap to before we reached 65k target, the PROFIT from the raffle online is 10.7k, which has to go down as one of our better ideas! But it is YOU folks who have done this. It's really caught the imagination.

We pay the final instalment of this season's 10% this week coming, paperwork being well which I'm sure it will be.

Then on we go.

Superb shout re FA Cup Charlie, we are definitely doing that now!
